1987 Viking 48 Convertible Fishing Boat in Miami, Florida

Stock #214862

Viking is known for the huge, 144-square-foot fishing cockpit--still the largest to be found in a flybridge boat this size as well as the solid front windshield and the easily accessible engine room.

As with all Viking models, the 48 Convertible is built on a low-deadrise modified-V hull with a wide beam and a shallow keel.

The 48's massive cockpit has two in-deck fish boxes, a tackle center, and a transom door. The flybridge has seating for eight.

This 1987 Viking 48 Convertible is equipped with twin Detroit Model 8V92 710 Diesels. This Viking is a "blank slate" waiting to be returned to Her former glory!

You would have to consider Her a "Project Boat" as you can see after viewing the Listing. Which is why She is being sold "As Is".

Information On Condition

The Viking is being sold "as is where is". (The purpose of an "as is" clause is to force the buyer to rely upon their own investigation, rather than upon the seller's representations, in determining whether or not to purchase). The seller states the fuel should be replaced or polished. The seller does not want to go out on a water trail unless it is in his current canal.

Boat has signs of freshwater intrusion in cabins. Engines were high and dry. 8/20

As per the Seller:

1. Westerbeke 15 KW Generator - needs circuit board replacement. Board was taken out to be repaired. Seller does not know where it is.
2. One Ocean Breeze iland one Marine Air AC in Salon - needs a water pump (one water pump supports both). Marine Air AC in forward Stateroom Salon is connected.
3. Hot Water Heater works
4. Refrigerator/Freezer needs service
5. 3 Burner Cook Top works
6. Microwave does not work
7. Ice Maker/Freezer - never used
8. TVs - all work
9. Fusion Stereo, Marine Radio and Speakers at the Upper Helm work.
10. Electronics will need to be updated
11. VHS Radio works
12. Heads work
13. Port and Starboard Stuffing Boxes repacked 8/8/20.
14. The hull was waxed in 2018
15. The engines were serviced in 2017
16. Dual-Purpose Flooded Marine Battery, 1730 MCA, Group 8D.

The boat has had limited use over the last four years. The engines have been started regularly. The fuel is old and needs to be replaced.

The buyer should expect that they are buying a fixer upper and not a fully functioning vessel.

8/8/20 Port and Starboard Stuffing Boxes repacked.
